Distribution of planktonic foraminifera in surface sediments of the Mediterranean Sea, supplement to: Thunell, Robert C (1978): Distribution of recent planktonic foraminifera in surface sediments of the Mediterranean Sea. Marine Micropaleontology, 3(2), 147-173Robert C Thunell
The Mediterranean Sea is a partillay isolated ocean where excess evaporation over precipitation results in large east to west gradients in temperature and salinity. Recent planktonic foraminiferal distributions have been examined in 66 surface sediment samples from the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to mapping the frequency distribution of 16 species, the faunal data has been subjected to cluster analysis, factor analysis and species diversity analysis. The clustering of species yields assemblages that are clearly temperature...
